Recently I carried many heavy boxes up & down stairs. Made several trips. Why are my hips & my back STILL in severe pain FOUR days later?

    You 100% slipped a disc

    You clearly moved the wrong way going up the stairs, and a disc fell out of place, which is causing strain on your back, no doubt in my mind about it! I did the same thing a year ago, and no word of a lie, I was couch ridden for 2 weeks, and it took me an additonal week to feel 100%.

    My advice:

    1- Motrion

    2- When you sleep at night always use 2 pillows. 1 on your neck, the other on your back where you feel the pain, and make sure you sleep flat, avoid sleeping on your side

    3- Its important you move as much as possible- The longer you sit or lay still, the more the back will tigten up

    4- Book an appointment with your doctor, you need to see the extent of the damage. You may or may not need surgery.

    You may have strained your back. Or worst scenario popped a disk. Take Ibuprofen for a week or so and rest. If it doesn't improve see a doctor.
